There are no homeless shelters in Burbank. On occasion, Burbank Temporary Aid Center provides emergency shelter at a local hotel for a family or individuals who have need of short term emergency shelter. Priority is given to families with children or those with health issues.

Often, families or individuals need a 2-7 nights of shelter before they can get into an apartment, transitional housing or a homeless shelter. There is no homeless shelter in the City of Burbank. Therefore Burbank Temporary Aid Center (BTAC), works with local hotels to provided limited emergency shelter. Priority is given to families with children or those with health issues. Recently, BTAC lost $15,000 of Federal funding to support this area and needs funds to provide this service.


Donating to support this project will help BTAC provide this program which is critical to families & those with health issues, especially during times of extreme heat, cold or precipitation. Without the funding, BTAC will have to dramatically cut back the number of nights they can provide emergency shelter.

Long-Term Impact

Of course, comfort and safety are outcomes of this emergency shelter program. However, especially during inclement weather, emergency shelter for someone who is struggling with health issues can be live-saving.
